Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

An overturned truck kept northbound lanes of McLoughlin Boulevard closed through Wednesday evening's commute.

The closure was in effect at Southeast 18th Avenue in Portland.

The truck and trailer rolled into a bridge, and ODOT officials said they need to close the road so they can safely remove the truck, perform bridge inspections and repair the bridge, if necessary.

There were no injuries in the crash, which happened around 11 a.m.

By 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, the truck and trailer had been removed. However, crews still expected to spend hours cleaning up oil and fuel off the road.
